SHANGHAI, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chemours Company (Chemours) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, today announces its fluoropolymer technologies are essential for 5G during CHINAPLAS, held in Guangzhou, China. CHINAPLAS is the world's leading plastics and rubber trade fair, and widely recognized by the industry as one of the most influential exhibitions in the world.

Each day, smart devices are connecting our world in ways never imagined. By 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is projected to consist of over 50 billion connected devices. To help meet this significant rise in IoT technology, 5G networks, the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, will provide the infrastructure to support increased demand for big data, faster speeds and more reliable connections.

As designers and manufacturers continue to innovate electronic devices, 5G networks will become even more essential. High-performance fluoropolymers have helped to fuel this growth by enabling the development of faster, smaller, and more durable microprocessors, semiconductors, and transistors.

Teflon(TM) fluoropolymers and Viton(TM) fluoroelastomers have provided essential benefits behind the evolution of 5G networks.

Whether it's computer cables, smart devices, or wearables, customizable Teflon(TM) fluoropolymers and Viton(TM) fluoroelastomers from Chemours provide innovative solutions that meet the performance and safety needs for consumer electronics.

Incorporating Teflon(TM) fluoropolymer resins into cable insulation and jacketing improves electrical performance and adds an unmatched level of fire safety performance. These properties are essential in cabling systems for local area networks (LAN), data centers, and other high-performance telecommunications applications such as high-speed cables.

Teflon(TM) fluoropolymers are also important in the semiconductor manufacturing process. 5G is already impacting the semiconductor industry growth and modifying its requirements. Printed circuit boards (PCB) will rely heavily on high-performance fluoropolymer materials in the 5G telecommunications era. From data centers to cell towers to personal devices, fluoropolymers' superior dielectric properties and low dissipation factors provide ultra-high frequency and high speed performance.

As people increasingly "wear" their electronic devices like digital watches and activity trackers, our fluoropolymers help make those devices more comfortable and more efficient. Viton(TM) fluoroelastomers multiple color solution is widely recognized on wearable devices in the watchband market for its luxury haptics and proven bio-compatibility. In addition, Viton(TM) fluoroelastomers have excellent chemical inertness, UV resistance and anti-corrosion properties. To meet every changing consumer preferences for improved quality and cosmetic appearance, Chemours continues to innovate its Viton(TM) fluoroelastomers materials by having agile tailor-made color matching. 

As technology and 5G networks continue their rapid expansion, the need for semiconductor minimization, faster connectivity speeds, higher frequencies and low-loss signals will rely even more on fluoropolymers from Chemours.  

"For 80 years, the fluoropolymer business within Chemours has provided industry-defining solutions to meet the most complex and evolving needs of our customers, and now we are excited to do the same for 5G implementation," said Paul Kirsch, president, Chemours Fluoroproducts.
